FUD

Fear Uncertainty Doubt

1. | concept

Spreading negative sentiment towards the future of crypto, sometimes with reason, sometimes malicous

2. | concept

A feeling often widespread during bear markets and crashes. Information which is negative towards cryptocurrency in general, or towards specific coins – especially when it comes to future prices – is an instance of FUD. Especially when repeated without cause.

3. | information

The spread of FUD is often coordinated and aligned with a personal agenda. One good way to attack a project is to spread false, misleading or exaggerated news about your rivals on social media. As such, the intent of each source should always be taken into consideration.
